Love theatre 🎭

I saw the theatre of love
saw lovers jumping into play
words were floating around
eyes were they display.


Men and women laughing loud
music went into survey
bodies trying to engage
minds trying to obey.


As the night follows course
things came into decay
love took new position
love theatre was to stay.


Laying hands, playing games
I saw love as an essay
each scene evolving theme
each finding a better way
to conquer a love routine
to get paid or to pay.

        Thanks Santita. Went to a bar restaurant last night and could not just be there but to observe people. Some were truly playing in the love theatre. Thus the idea.

                Malu, you reminded me with this lovely poem that we really are all actors on the stage of life. And you did what all good writers do: You took in an actual scene and made it into something beautiful, exciting, and meaningful with your imagination. Something to think about.

                • malubotelho

                  Thank you Fred. In life either we play or we watch the play. And sometimes we can do both. Be in play and watch it and write about.
